“It was very hard: perhaps one of the most demanding editions of the Scopigno Cup where the anti – Covid protocol was the protagonist – explains the ASD Scopigno Cup President Fabrizio Formichetti – nevertheless everything went very well and the merit is to be shared with everyone, starting with our sponsors (Crai, Intesa Sanpaolo, Poste Italiane, Fondazione Varrone, Erg and all the other sponsors) and media partners (Rai Sport, Radio Radio, Gazzetta dello Sport, Tuttosport, Corriere dello Sport etc.) who represent the engine of the event . Heartfelt thanks to the European Parliament, the Presidency of the Council of Ministers office for Sport for their support, the Municipalities of Amatrice and Rieti always at our side, the participating teams and the very welcome guests of honor including Paolo Di Canio, Stefano Mauri, Guglielmo Stendardo and José Eduardo ‘Edo’ Carrasco ”.
“It has been a success for all those who have contributed in various ways also with their presence – concludes Formichetti – Now for the future we await new increasingly demanding and stimulating challenges, also because we want to grow more and more and improve at three hundred and sixty degrees: we are convinced that by combining the passion and determination of all the members of the ASD Scopigno Cup, with the support of our wonderful current and future sponsors and media partners, as well as all the institutions (including those who have been a little fugitive this year), we will be able to win this challenge too “.
